Stayed here for a weekend and enjoyed it. The staff were very friendly and accomodating. Ideal for a person with a mobility issue if you are able to book the ground floor room. The manager was able to sort this out for us. The above floors have no lift access and although this is plainly stated on the website, i...

The hotel is well located in Tenby with easy access to town and seafront. Our room was clean, bright, well appointed and comfortable with views of both town walls and sea. Hotel staff were welcoming, supportive and very efficient. Breakfast in the dining room was ample and well prepared with excellent views over the seafront. Well worth a visit! Thank...

Lovely bed , fantastic view in room 14 I strongly recommend you stay in! Breakfast is also lovely - the mushrooms are a must have! Only thing I'd criticise it for is hiding the WIFI details in a drawer ! Maybe leave that out on the side for guests? But other than that amazing

Nice with A Brilliant bed and pleasant staff, the location was excellent , whilst the rooms where good that's all they where , they seemed a little jaded and in need of a refresh to be honest.. Better places for this kind of money in the local area

A very comfortable hotel if of an age which must require constant attention. Not withstanding that it was clean freshly decorated and excellent for our purposes (visiting relatives). The only possible downside was that the phone appeared not to work (we wouldn't have noticed if the proprietor hadn't pointed it out) and the kettle was to big to fill from...

Returning to Tenby after too many years away. Wanted to stay close to the headland between the two main beaches, the Esplanade was ideally placed. We made a mistake in the booking being out by one day, this was not a problem to the owner who dealt with the matter withhout any fuss. The hotel is a very old building...

Had an enjoyable long weekend here in late October and wasn't disappointed. We booked a room with a seaview which is one of the bonuses of this hotel and I would think makes it extremely popular. On a downside they don't have their own parking but 24 hour parking in the multi storey is only £3 so good value but...
